The Emmy nominations will be announced on July 16, and as someone who has followed the awards for literally decades now, I’m nothing if not a patron saint of lost causes. I’ve been banging the drum for overlooked shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer
,” “Gilmore Girls
,” “The Wire
” and “Looking” for years. So while I’ve been battered and bruised enough by those snubs not to get my hopes up too much anymore, here are the top 11 contenders I’m rooting for this year who are 100/1 long shots according to Gold Derby’s racetrack odds.

“One Day at a Time
” for Best Comedy Series, Best Comedy Actress (Justina Machado
), Best Comedy Supporting Actress (Rita Moreno

, but picked up by Pop TV
for season four.
